Our charming one bedroom cottage is the perfect place to relax after a busy day. A five minute walk to Bart, and a block from major bus lines make it easy to explore Berkeley, San Francisco and beyond. Or enjoy the abundance of restaurants and coffee shops in our neighborhood.
The detached guest cottage feels like a private oasis in our backyard. It has large windows that let in lots of light. The living room and kitchen are open to each other and feature a gas fireplace for those cold winter nights. The living room has a 32" TV and DVD player. The large bedroom has a king size bed and lots of storage space.You are also welcome to enjoy our backyard, which features a deck, garden beds and a gas grill.
Our cottage is ideally located in Berkeley with easy access to 80 and 580. UC Berkeley is a short bus ride or a 20 minute walk away and North Berkeley Bart is a 5 minute walk. There are numerous restaurants and coffee within walking distance as well as a Trader Joe's that is a 15 minute walk away. We have many parks in our neighborhood and are just blocks away from the Ohlone trail for running or biking.
There is now a lock box by the front door for easy check-in and check-out.
During your stay you are welcome to enjoy the backyard and gas grill. For long term stays (over a week long) we welcome guests to use our laundry room.
Interaction with guests
Gavin has lived in the Bay Area his whole life and is a wealth of knowledge on what to do during your stay. We are always happy to chat but also realized that some people want to enjoy time to themselves while traveling so we will take the lead from you, but please let us know if there is anything you need or if you have any questions during your stay. The yard is shared and you will see us out there with our dog and cat working in the garden or enjoying the sunshine.
Other things to note
Traveling with a child? We have a fold out bed for older ones and a pack n play for toddlers and infants.
We are a friendly young couple who have lived in Berkeley for nine years. We like to enjoy the sunshine in our back yard, garden, travel, barbecue with friends and play with our dog, Daisy. Gavin has lived in the Bay Area his whole life and is a great resource for anyone looking for advice on what to do, see or eat.
